The Londonderry Playground on Mammoth Road is a great place for families to enjoy!
Local resident and Mother of twin boys who have autism, Katie Keeley, proposed adding sensory equipment to an area of the LAFA playground (Funway Park) to Recreation Director, Art Psaledas. Art has a close and devoted connection to Londonderry families and the community. He is a retired Assistant Principal of LHS and helps coach the LHS football team, as well as continue to work on projects that are beneficial to Londonderry's residents. Art connected Katie with Jenelle Psaledas, who is a local occupational therapist, to help choose the best equipment for this addition.
The playground equipment would include a wheel chair accessible merry-go-round "spinner", two sets of drums, chimes and an adaptive swing. The playground equipment and installation comes to $25,000 which is being fundraised so the playground can be updated as soon as possible. Anyone interested in making a donation can write a personal check to "The Town of Londonderry", care of Justin Campo (Town Finance Director) and reference the playground addition.
